The Edge of the World is a place in Riyadh that’s known for its dramatic cliffs and panoramic views. Instead of visiting alone, going on a guided tour means there’s no need to worry about route planning—a guide can show you the best trail to go on. Once at the top, relax and enjoy a picnic break, and admire views of Mount Fahren.
Visiting the Edge of the World from Riyadh independently involves renting a 4x4 and tackling some unmade roads near the escarpment. Make everything easier and more enriching on this small-group tour, which includes transport, a guided hike on the clifftops for sunset views, and an optional bat cave visit.
From Riyadh, get to the cliffs on the edge of the world and see the natural wonders of Arabia along the way, like Elephant Rock and Jabal Abyad. You’ll stand on top of 1000ft (300m) cliffs at Jabal Fihrayn and see the land stretch seemingly forever in front of you. Observe dried rivers, camels wandering around, and hear stories of the ancient caravan route.
The dunes and rocks of Al Thumama desert north Riyadh are perfect for outdoor adventure, but getting to them and booking activities there independently can be time-consuming. Make everything easy and focus on the fun with this small-group safari from Saudi’s capital. Travel by air-conditioned vehicle and on arrival, conquer the dunes on a quad bike and enjoy a camel ride as you absorb the vast desert landscapes. Instructions, snacks and equipment are included for your convenience.
Learn all about Riyadh on this self guided audio walking tour. This tour can last from about one hour, to as long as you’d like to spend.

Buy some handicrafts on Al Thumairi Street, and finish at Ath Thumairi Gate, all the while hearing the history and stories of each place.
The Edge of the World (its real name is Jabal al-Firin), one of the most popular tourist destinations in Saudi Arabia, gets its nickname from the continuous view of the horizon it offers over its 300-meter-high cliffs, which overlook the surrounding plain. It is part of the much longer Tuwaiq escarpment, descending about 305 meters to the bottom of the ancient ocean. From the top of the cliffs, you'll spot dry rivers that weave across the land and you may see camels moving away below - an ancient caravan route that once ran through these lands. We can enjoy the sunset from the top of the mountain and take unforgettable memorial photos
